This photo was most likely taken in the 1950’s.  I guess that because of the saddle shoes that two of the gals are wearing.  The vehicles all look like they are from the 1940’s.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.

A while back my computer crashed, all of my photos are stored on Simple Save external drives.  I had some problems weeding out the photos that I have used versus not used…so I hope I don’t double up and use a photo I have posted before.  I have been through those files multiple times.. It was a good lesson to when I use a photo I tag it with  the number I used on the post:)

Update from Iggy:
These gals might be from the Albert Lea area.
Jacqueline R. married Eugene Graveman (of Albert Lea).


  1. I wonder who "me" was... :)

    Jeanne Stolock (age 12 in 1940)
    Carlston Township, Freeborn, Minnesota

    Jacqelin Recknos (age 8 in 1940)
    Hartland Village, Freeborn, Minnesota

    Gloria Ann Warke (age 7 in 1940)
    Bath Township, Freeborn, Minnesota

    So I would assume the photo was taken in Freeborn County, Minnesota.


  2. Perhaps the Albert Lea Senior High School?

  3. Jacqelin Recknos name is likely misspelled in the census. I see Recknor family members in Find-A-Grave in the Hartland Cemetery.

  4. Jacqueline R. married Eugene Graveman (of Albert Lea).

  5. Oh, crash? Somehow I missed that tag before. At least now, you have improved your filing system. Every little bit helps...gotta stay positive :)

  6. Cute photo. I had a very narrow feet growing up and saddle oxfords were about the only thing that fit me. I had them in several different colors~ They teased me that I would be wearing them on my wedding day!!!

  7. I will mail a copy of the blog to Jackie in Albert Lea on Saturday or Monday...we will see what happens.

  8. I have to move mine from the "old photos scanned" folder to the "old photos used" folder. I too have tried to use a photo a second time. After a few hundred how can we remember them all? :-) Glad your files were not lost!!

  9. I am mailing the photo off to Jackie in Albert Lea! :)
